The political powerhouse has been drawing more speculation towards their future in American politics with some thinking Hilary will run in 2016 (she has denied it I believe) and Chelsea Clinton moderating a panel of non-profit leaders- something that might hint she could make the move into politics too.

Thoughts on the "Clinton dynasty"? The new Kennedys?

Shes damn cute....and knows things.

....:giggle:....

Hillary will run and win in 2016 and be re-elected in 2020....you heard it here first!

:smug:
I don't think Hilary will run. At least I hope not.

Weren't there rumors Jeb Bush could make a run too? There's another dynasty family.

side note: people I'd like to see run in 2016 so far are Chris Christie and Michael Bloomberg

Oh please no...no mo' Bushes. I don't think Jeb wants it anyway. Now Christie on the other hand....I would have to think about that one. I like him too. And I wouldn't mind seeing Huntsman sometime in the future either.

But I stand by my prediction ~ You heard it here first!

I was going to say Huntsman too actually. Need to hear more about all three's policy positions though, especially Huntsman's. And by that I mean specifics.

He was our gov before Obama made him ambassador to China. Generally, he's fiscally conservative ( big on common sense ) and somewhat socially moderate. I always liked him as gov. He was good for the state generally. That's about as much endorsement as I can give a conservative hahaha.

He seems like a smart and well-intentioned guy. I could care less if someone identifies as a conservative or a liberal though, it's too subjective a label. I'm not even sure what I identify as anymore and I don't really try to figure that out- it's not important; my opinions on the issues are what matter.

Agreed. Labels are sometimes useful to get a general idea though. When I tell people I align pretty closely with Progressive values, they can make certain assumptions that are mostly true. But of course you're right that opinions are issue by issue, and people are the same.

Yea, but they also cause a lot of misunderstanding and useless fighting. I don't know where I fall anyway- I used to be quite libertarian and I guess I still lean that way. On most social issues I am liberal, but I am fiscally conservative. I am pretty libertarian on fiscal theory, but not on monetary theory (I think there should be a central bank, etc.) depending on how you define libertarian. Above the ideologies I value the science though- if there is strong evidence that something works I might support it if it makes sense. I've voted Republican, Democrat, and Independent. Was registered independent, then switched to Republican because I wanted to vote in the primaries in 2008 and I stayed with that til now, but plan on switching back to independent. I'm a mess when it comes to fitting in 1 label and I like it that way :p

Huntsman is a great man, unfortunately he will not run.

My Prediction:

Chris Christie~ Republican

Someone of substance~Independent

Regardless...Hillary will win.

I'll vote for Jeb before Hillary, I just don't trust her after the '08 campaign.

Though I think Jeb is a pretty good man....I simply cant vote to extend the dynasty after the last one.

I lived under him. He's not the idiot his brother is and told him where to go a few times during his administration. Also Jeb's son has filed papers to run for office in Texas.

Preston...(George P. Bush) may very well manage to save the GOP with his Pro-Hispanic bent. Still, I have a shiver up my spine when the Bush name is involved.

Voted for H.W...and watched the end or what Reagan accomplished begin.

After awhile Clinton looked pretty good.

Voted for Clinton and watched the Regan party become something I no longer liked.

Watched W push the party to something I truly did not want to be associated with.

Then have seen the GOP treat Obama so much worse than they complained the Dems did toward Bush it is beyond blatant partisanship.

I have come to the point (first time in my life), that I am likely to vote pure party.....I am that disgusted.

I know Hillary Clinton has been downplaying such speculation, but there is no doubt in my mind that she will become president in 2016. She will most likely face the likes of Governor Chris Christie (meh), Senator Rand Paul (better) or even Governor Rick Perry (hope not).

The question that should be asked is: will she be a one-term president?

However, does she even have the energy to become president? I don't know understand why anyone in their right mind would even want to be the next president of the United States: a soaring national debt, a divided country, a worthless currency and a bloated government!

We're our own creditors so it's not like we're going to get repoed, we've always been divided, our currency is the premier currency of the world and is used as the reserve currency and even national currency is some nations and big/small gov't is a lie.
